NEW YORK, February 3, 2022 — Twentyeight Health, a telehealth company increasing access to sexual and reproductive care for women from underserved communities, today announced that the company has launched Spanish language telehealth services in four new states: Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
“According to Planned Parenthood, 57% of Latina women ages 18-34 have struggled with the cost of prescription birth control — and it’s our mission to bring this number down to zero,” said Amy Fan, co-founder of Twentyeight Health. “In working with thousands of individuals over the last few years whose native language is Spanish, we saw a clear need to expand beyond our English-based text, audio, and messaging services. We’re thrilled to launch in four new states across the U.S., where collectively more than one million residents speak Spanish as their primary language.”
Twentyeight Health’s Spanish language services for residents include:
“Even though Spanish is one of the most widely-spoken languages in the U.S., with more than 40 million U.S. residents speaking Spanish at home, a Health Affairs study published in 2021 shows that Spanish speakers receive approximately one-third less care than other Americans,” said Bruno Van Tuykom, co-founder of Twentyeight Health. “Our Spanish language services will further increase access to sexual and reproductive care for millions of people across the country.”
Twentyeight Health is expanding its Spanish Language services at a time of significant growth for the company. Over the last year, Twentyeight Health launched in states across the Midwest, West Coast, and Southern United States, and is now available in more than 30 states, serving more than 85% of women of reproductive age.
